Yes, mostly yes and four weeks :).

First day and Tuesday morning we had bit of cloud/rain but it's mostly 24/25 degrees during the day which is plenty warm enough for me. Just eaten at Shoestring and Vrisaki so far; Vrisaki has a new menu this year, I had Vrisaki chicken which is chicken (obviously) in a cream, mushroom, bacon and tabasco sauce which was brilliant with roast potatoes (I always specify roast Greek spuds with every meal wherever I am here as the default side seems to be chips with everything nowadays, never used to be). My medical "thing" means I have damaged taste buds and a small appetite so food is mostly a bit of a chore really but I ate all of it, much to my wife's amazement.

That's a real shame Tony, I really hope it's nothing that means you have to cancel.

I actually got very lucky in that regard, two days before we came out I had the final five year check and was declared "all clear" and formally discharged.

I'll be keeping everything crossed for you next Tuesday.

Very sad to hear that Tony, is it holiday cancelling bad or "come back as soon as you're home" bad? In my case there were gaps when I was left to my own devices and told getting the right treatment was more important than getting quick treatment; sincerely hope it's the latter.

I said to my wife that if they found anything amiss at my appt, I'd say, "OK see you in four weeks" but in truth she wouldn't have let me do that unless the docs agreed.

Sending you our best thoughts and wishes, you've done so much for so many on here and on TA over the years and I get the distinct impression you're a big character (though we've never met), think the island and many people on it will miss you as much as you will it if you don't get to make the trip.

Aye, good luck to you Tony. 
I'll be in a similar boat to you some time in the yet to be determined future.
I'm not putting my life on hold waiting for things to happen though but when the doc says it's time then we'll just have to deal with any holiday disruption as best as we can.

Fingers crossed for you.

Cheers.            Tom and Rose
